WATCH: Australian cricketer Nic Maddinson apes Jasprit Bumrah's bowling action during Sheffield Shield final

Bumrah enjoys a massive fan following across the world for his unorthodox action.

Nic Maddinson | ScreengrabHaving made his international debut in January 2016, India speedster Jasprit Bumrah has come a long way. He has claimed 113 wickets at an average of 25.42 in 70 ODIs with five four-wicket hauls and one 5-fer, while his T20I wicket-tally read 67 in 57 games at an economy rate of 6.50.

Bumrah has also left his mark in the longest format, claiming 123 scalps in 29 Tests at 21.73 with eight five-wicket hauls. The right-arm pacer was instrumental in India’s last two Test series wins in Australia.

No wonder, Bumrah enjoys a massive fan following across the world. His unorthodox action is being imitated by the budding cricketers.

Bumrah’s popularity can be seen by the fact that his action came into discussion during the Sheffield Shield final between Victoria and Western Australia (WA) on Monday (April 4) as Nic Maddinson hilariously tried to imitate it.

Maddinson's antics left the rest of the players and commentators in splits. He too enjoyed bowling like Bumrah with the left-arm as he had a big smile on his face during and after the run-up.
